Description:

PR66 1910 Quarter Eagle
Rare, Two-Year Proof Type
1910 $2 1/2 PR66 PCGS. CAC. The nature of the design, with its sunken relief details, made coinage of brilliant proof Indian quarter eagles and half eagles impossible in terms of early 20th century technology. The so-called Roman Finish of 1909 and 1910 proof gold coins was the closest thing to brilliant proofs that could be produced at the time. The color was bright yellow, with slightly reflective surfaces, compared to the dull brown matte finish of 1908 proof gold coins.
Although Mint records indicate that 682 proof quarter eagles were struck in 1910, that is almost certainly an incorrect figure. That figure was either a typographical error, or it was the total of proofs actually minted, rather than the total distributed. Comparative population data suggests an actual mintage figure in the range of 200 coins. PCGS and NGC have combined to certify a total of 168 proof 1910 Indian quarter eagles with an average grade of 64.5. The two grading services have certified 33 examples in PR66, 13 in PR67, and one in PR68.
The satiny surfaces of this Premium Gem show a finely textured granularity that is entirely unlike other proof gold coins of the era. The lemon-yellow color appeared only on 1909 and 1910 proof gold coins, making them the most desirable proofs of the design type for 20th century gold connoisseurs. A slight olive tint appears on the reverse. Every intricate die detail is reproduced on the actual coin. Population: 5 in 66, 1 finer (11/10).
